Ages 6-8. Hurricane Bob is on the way. A girl and her father, who are vacationing, prepare quickly. They tape the cottage windows, take down the swing, bind the picnic table to a tree, and stash the lawn furniture. Then they head to town for provisions. The supermarket is packed. Besides food, they'll need candles and batteries. Once home, the girl watches from the cottage window as the rain pounds the beach,and boats bob on the waves like toys. The next morning, father and daughter survey the damage and set out to make repairs. The tone is flat, but the story is sensitive to the child's concerns, and the illustrations are not too scary, even as the storm rages outside the cottage windows. Hurricane facts at the end of the book, presented in the form of questions that children are likely to ask, will be good for parent-child discussion. Shelley Townsend-Hudson

PreS-Gr 2-A young girl vacationing with her father at their beach cottage helps prepare for a pending storm. When Hurricane Bob hits with all its fury, she watches in alarm from the window as the wind and rain wreak havoc outside. Finally it subsides, and life returns to semi-normal as the clean-up operation begins the next day. This realistic story is enhanced with finely drawn illustrations of the landscape and people involved before, during, and after the storm. Pair it with Corinne Demas's Hurricane! (Marshall Cavendish, 2000), about the same event and with a similar reassuring tone.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
